Default Wood Quandry Part Deux

Okay, the clients are on opposite sides as to how to proceed. To help them decide I get to do a sample! Iíve got an idea, weíll see if it works. So hereís a step by step so you can discover along with me that I probably shouldíve said no.

I started by choosing a base color, in this case itís Ben Moore Semolina. I added some check marks with a check roller using some tube acrylic burnt umber and Faux Effects Faux Creme Clear.

The next step was a very thin oil glaze with burnt umber and burnt sienna. Stripey.

Sideways of course.

Next step I decided to put a mixture of the Golden Interference Gold(Fine) tube acrylic with some faux creme. I just slopped it on there and gave it a few swipes with my trusty squeegee. I also blended it out with the badger brush.
I think you can see it in the center.

Upside down. JFC.

Next, I started laying in some grain using a super thin oil glaze and burnt umber. I overworked the right side trying to get fancy and got all sorts of crap in there, so donít look at that part.

Hereís a sample I had laying around and did a little testing. On the sample Iím doing now I used the center to put the interference paint under the grain layers. It might not work but I still have the side areas to test the interference paint closer to the top layer.

You're on another level FauxLynn. I say that having accidentally looked at the right side, (even though you told me not to).

Keep us posted.

Agreed!!!...and I think that FauxLynnn could easily retire as a millionaire just by putting a fancy frame on her work table covered with all that Picasso craziness.

It looks ok, just donít think itís going to flash the way it should. Much of what Iíve done since last post is just layers of the interference and layers of figure, tone. I put an isolation layer of urethane after each step and things are taking forever to dry.

Welp, those are out of order and Iím not going to even try to fix it.
This afternoon I went back in and added more lines that are crisper, I think I blended it out too much before. Then, to my surprise thereís a lot more raw umber and cad red in here. Adding those two colors brought it closer to spot on.

I think Iím going to put another layer of interference on there, maybe some chatter marks, idk.

VERY IMPRESSIVE WORK !!! Love it.

Seriously, consider framing your work bench top and sell it to some wealthy customer.
It would look great as an abstract art work hanging on the wall.

I donít know whether to laugh at you or tell you to buzz off. But I DO know that YouKnowNothing about art.
Thanks for the compliment.

What's there to know about abstract art.
Nothing. It's abstract. Everything goes. No rules like in other styles of art, (paintings).

I'm imagining some of your work table pieces framed in gold leafed ornamental picture frames (for shock of styles effect), and other in very modern picture frames.

I think I know what I am talking about since I have seen such pieces of abstract art work coming from work benches (of a furniture spray paint shop)
framed and displayed in a fancy home.
It looked stunning and very 'visually involving' because of all the shapes and colors.
Your work tables are even better because of hand work on them (not sprayed), all those natural brush strokes, more artsy that way.

Take a look at this, (of course imagine the piece of "wood" in the middle removed from it), just your work bench with all it's Picasso insanity for eyes to see and wonder over it, trying to figure it out what's going on there.
STUNNING...!!!

You know nothing about marketing natural masterpieces to wealthy clientele

Okay, now I’m sure you’re full of it. Picasso insanity? Those two words don’t belong in the same sentence.


FAIL

Anyway, no millionaire works of art here. Just bread on my table.

Well, between Picasso and Salvador Dali I'm sure Picasso was the insane one.
Unless we bring in that Dutch guy who cut his ear off. LOL

Maybe I can make a deal with you and buy them from you, and you can buy yourself new clean work tops.
Are they very heavy.
How many pieces of those do you have.

I hope Redux will be wiling to go 50/50 with me and sell them to his super wealthy customers.
Win-Win big profits for us, and you will get new work table tops.
Win-Win-Win

I think I will market them under the name: "Abstract Quandry"
Very catchy name for this art work collection by: Fauxlynn, represented by: IKnowNothing Art Pimp Inc.

Bored, huh?


That homasote has been hanging there for twenty something years. It’s priceless and not for sale. It’d be like cutting off my arm. Plus, I’m not famous. Nobody wants that homasote.

Just FYI- Picasso was actually an amazing ‘traditional’ artist but figured out he could make a lot of money giving the people what they wanted. Cubism.

I never wanted Cubism. (Maybe I'm just not "people").



And I won't talk art. Because I know nothing about it. (I thought about majoring in it, and realized I couldn't suddenly be creative because it was X time on Monday, or whatever. That's just not inspiring).



But when I retire and move on to my retirement occupations I'm going to see if you're advertising for interns. That stuff if really looking good. Very impressive.

No. Not at all. Just touched by your art. And hoping to get my hands on it.

Everything is for sale, depends on the price. Some insane people even sell their souls. Like Picasso.
He sold his first love. All just for money. Traitor.

Cubism. Kitsch art that requires acid tripping in order to grasp even some remote sense of it.

"Nobody wants that homasote."
LOL. Oh, please, now you introducing psychological warfare to the negotiations.
Hard to get tactics.

I know that you would love to see your abstract work hanging next to Picassos and Salvador Dalis in houses of rich people who would be willing to pay big bucks for it.

I hope Redux will join us in it.
His connections are massive.

Lynn’s abstract work table is reminiscent of some obscure abstract artwork found in a decrepit detached garage in my neighborhood by a real estate investor who purchased the property shortly after the artist owner’s passing. The artwork by the relatively unknown artist Arthur Panajian almost ended up in a dumpster before being appraised at $30 Million.
